Choose the Future is a conference for everyone who understands that education is required to sustain our future. Be a part of this unique forum on the actions and connections between achieving economic goals, just social systems, and a healthy environment.

Designed for educators who wish to embed the principles and practices of sustainable development in their teaching and program planning, this conference also applies to leaders of business, NGO’s and government who wish to engage their employees and stakeholders in sustainable practices and operations.

With industry leading speakers highlighting a range of sustainable development topics, the conference also showcases the Manitoba Sustainable Development Round Table 2008 Manitoba Excellence in Sustainability Awards. These awards, developed by the Manitoba Round Table for Sustainable Development, recognize and honour people, projects, and ideas that successfully turn the principles and guidelines of sustainable development into concrete, lasting achievements.

This conference is a project of the Manitoba Education for Sustainable Development Working Group (MESDWG), which brings together stakeholders from the formal, non-formal, and informal education sectors in an effort to further develop, communicate and promote ESD in Manitoba.

The MESDWG was created in 2005 jointly by Learning for a Sustainable Future (a national not for profit organization), Environment Canada (Federal government), Manitoba Education, Citizenship and Youth, and Manitoba Advanced Education and Literacy (Provincial government). The Science Teachers Association of Manitoba (STAM) is a major sponsor and partner in this conference.
